Some of McFee’s best finds have come — like Clark’s pencils did — from his family, who are all teachers. That’s how he found a box of educational picture cards from the ’70s, which depict everyday objects and scenarios, some with racially insensitive captions. Clark has used the cards for inspiration, while McFee has recently been using them as makeshift canvases, drawing his characters on top of apples, loaves of bread, beach balls, and other strange and mundane illustrations.
